*+ This program will include a tune up race 4 weeks prior to the NYC Tri for athletes wishing to do a sprint before racing an Olympic. Any athlete who wishes to use this program to train for the sprint only (or a different Olympic distance race) may certainly do so. It is not required to do the NYC Tri, to participate in this program. We cannot guarantee that the races will go on as scheduled but will keep athletes informed of any information as soon as we receive it, and will ensure that you’re properly trained and prepared for the events should the races take place even if we cannot meet up in person.
Empire Tri Club will conduct weekly workouts, clinics, and special events specifically tailored to preparing you for your first triathlon, given the equipment, facilities and resources available to you. This program is suitable for all levels. We will continue to monitor the COVID19 situation and adapt the program as necessary until we’re able to resume our normal group training schedule.
